FEMA (2000) reported a study conducted in France between 1993 and 1995 on motorcycle accident with guardrail accounting for 8% of all motorcycle fatalities and 13% of fatalities on rural roads. In a similar study in France, Quincey et al. (1988) compares motorcycle-barrier crashes with other types of motorcycle crashes and found that motorcyclists are over 5 times more likely to be killed or seriously injured in impacts with crash barrier than in other types of crashes. In Denmark, as reported in FEMA (2000), 10% of motorcyclists that run-off the road hit a crash barrier and 20% of these died because of the crash barrier while 60% of them were seriously injured.
